Can't quite sum it up!
This was my first opera and not sure I would go again. I went with an experienced opera goer and her words to me were, "such a shame as this was your first opera, so disappointing. The scenery and costumes were so boring, but the singing was exceptional" I have to say I expected an extravaganza of colour and scenery but got nothing of the sort. Also 3.5 hours of looking at the same stage and costumes was boring.
